A Thoroughly Enjoyable Experience From The Gold 300 5.1 System

Upon reviewing our Gold 300 5.1 system, Bob Barrett of HomeTheaterReview.com was undoubtedly impressed by the "beautifully designed" speakers, and goes on to say that the "Monitor Audio Gold Series system is the best-sounding surround system at its price point that I've ever heard, period."

"I thoroughly enjoyed the sound I was hearing through the Gold Series speakers."

"...all of the micro details were present, from the fingertip friction sounds on the guitar strings to Angus's breathing to the decay of piano notes."

"...the soundstage was very wide, again compliments of the ribbon transducer. And the Gold 300 speakers reproduced it all with the tonal neutrality found among only the best loudspeakers."

"The W15 provided excellent deep-bass foundation, adding to the scale and impact of this selection."

"...dialogue articulation remained superb, and the more diffuse presentation of the surrounds in dipole mode helped to provide a more seamless 360-degree soundscape."

"Scene after scene, I marveled at the clean, coherent nature of the Gold Series sound."

Gold 5.1 is a stunner!

October’s edition of Home Cinema Choice hosts a stunning review debut for the Gold 300AV 5.1 system. Awarding a Best Buy (rare at the price level) and five glorious stars in every category: Performance, Design, Features and Overall, the magazine’s home theatre doyen Adam Rayner concludes “So, the Gold 300AV costs plenty but offers enormity. It has the might and it has clarity. It can play sweet and linear at low levels or it can frighten the neighbours’ neighbours. The sheer bandwidth on tap is amazing and in truth, after admiring the design and finish and a little experimentation with the sub’s EQ settings, you’ll rapidly forget about the enclosures. The sound is immediately engaging, grasping you by the senses and dragging you into a movie with ease. With the Gold 300AV you get delicious performance in every direction. You could pay more and get less. Best buy, easy.”
